If you want to have something that will meet all your needs a 2 stage 60 gallon should be more than enough for the home garage. If you need a great air ratchet at a reasonable price go purchase a 1/2 inch earthquake at harbour freight this ratchet is a real workhorse that will never let you down not to mention the price is affordable. Good luck on your search
